She graduated with a degree in Interior Design at the College of Applied Arts, Thessaloniki and she is currently continuing her studies to obtain a MA in Fine Art at the Chelsea College of Arts, UK.
Ermina Avramidou’s works are visual illusions. An almost unreal world unfolds before our eyes, reminding us that the most colorful, dreamlike and revealing scenes are those emerging from darkness. Foggy forests, exotic birds, starry skies, waterfalls, tropical rains, strange sea creatures are leaping out of her paintings like impressive stained glasses picturing landscapes which may not exist, yet seem familiar.
Ermina Avramidou has been the only Greek artist exhibiting at the royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2015. She has presented her paintings in various art galleries in Greece and her latest exhibition was held at the Cactus London Gallery in Marylebone, London in December 2016. At the Art Takes Miami of 2011 she was selected as one of the 200 best artists from several thousand entries. She lives and works in London.
